Explore Friuli can help you with your

family / ancestors (re)search

Are you looking for information about your (great) grandparents that came from Friuli?
Maybe I can help you!

Dear visitor of my site,

Did you end up on my site because your roots are in Friuli Venezia Giulia? Do you have (great) grandparents who come from somewhere in Friuli Venezia Giulia and have emigrated to America, Argentina, Australia or other countries in the world? Would you like to learn more about them and where you originally come from, but you don't know how to do it? I can help you with that.


I have already done research for several customers living in the United States of America and Australia. I helped them contacting the parish, the town hall. I looked into old archives and used the (few) information they were able to give me to find out the history of their Friulan ancestors.


I can also help to translate old documents you might have into English.

If you want to know more please feel free to contact me.

I hope to hear from you. 

Kind regards, 

Elbrich Bos

The emigration from Friuli, a Friulian history

One of the most important demographic phenomena in Friuli was emigration. It began in the final decades of the 19th century and ended in the 1970s.

It is estimated that more than a million Friulian people emigrated away over a period of approximately one hundred years. According to the most recent census by AIRE (2005), Friulian émigrés living abroad number 134,936. Of these, 56.0% reside in Europe, 24.0% in South America, 10.3% in North America and 4.7% in Oceania. 


This data only reflects those Friulians and their descendants who have Italian citizenship. The descendants of Friulians are excluded from the census because they are not Italian citizens. Friulians in the world have supported cultural associations called Fogolârs furlans, of which there are 46 in Italy and 156 in the rest of the world.

Are you one of the descendants of these ancestors emigrated from Friuli? Maybe I can help you to find information about your history.
